It´s our Wars

My friend saw the picture and blew this out:

”It happens far from us –  but then again, not even that much – but it happens every day, even when we do not see it, even if no one says it.
War is death and destruction and fear and disorientation; it’s the end of the places the way they were, annihilation of life which had been until then.
Wars created by the civilised West, fought with weapons manufactured and exported by us.
Our hand is on those dead, though we like to think we are not involved.
And the refugees that we Western developed countries do not want,  are running away from this: wars, death, fear, things that we thankfully will never know.
They are refugees of our wars .”

  1. THE NOVEMBER 25 INTERNATIONAL GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS DAY PROJECT posted as a petition to the UN December 1 after the first November 25 International Global Consciousness Day November 2011, was more than a petition to the UN. It aimed at creating a World Wide Facebook Users Voice in Solidarity to End the Vicious Cycle of Wars, environment, human and animal destruction. Facebook users were asked to all use the same profile picture in support of World Peace and the November 25 Principle as the platform for Global Consciousness.

    It was anticipated that if only a few hundred people would use the Profile Picture it would create a ripple effect and go viral across the net, from there it would spread further, the news media would take notice and people would take an interest in reading up and responding to the project.

    Since November 25, 2011, a mere 20 people have consistently maintained the World Peace Profile Picture as their Voice For World Peace. Thousands of people have seen and “Liked” the continuous World Peace posts including the Profile Picture, yet none aside from 20 VOICES FOR CHANGE MEMBERS have ever taken the time to read the NOVEMBER 25 PETITION/DECLARATION, not even the 1147 people who signed the 2011 petition have read a word, neither have any signatories of our follow up petitions. This year, November 2016 will be the 6th November 25 International Global Consciousness Day. The mere 20 VOICES FOR CHANGE remain, waiting for people to add their VOICE IN SOLIDARITY FOR WORLD PEACE.
